This Just In!

Forgive my time travel back from 1954, but E has just informed me that Olympic Volunteers are issued a ‘Non-Religious Moral Guide’ authored by none other than L Ron Hubbard! Suddenly, the lovefest in the coat tent makes sense! The high-fives and group hugs would certainly be par for the course.

But the poor bus etiquette and general uselessness? L Ron should have devoted a chapter to that. Because these people get free bus passes, outfits and accessories, and this what I see them doing:

Standing around on street corners in groups, perusing maps and disrupting the flow of pedestrian traffic.

Walking around gawking at things. See above, re: pedestrian traffic.

Not moving back as more people get on the bus.

Not vacating seats for the elderly/people with crutches on the bus.

Getting off the front doors of the bus, even when there is a clear way to the back doors.

Not doing a single useful thing since the beginning to February, that I can see. (Dude who scrutinized my boobs in an effort to find the accreditation badge that wasn’t there, you are a double helping of Useless. They are boobs, not plastic laminated pics of my face. Lots of people can tell the difference.)

L Ron, you’re on notice. You’re falling down on your Politeness Brainwashing Obligations.

    L Ron? For Realz? That’s BIZARRE.

    No, E swears. For realz. He’s going to try and swipe one for photographic evidence.

    Whoah. L. Ron.

    I knew the transit had to be bad when I heard the traffic reporter on the CBC afternoon show say “in other news, translink just sent us an email asking us to tell everyone to MOVE TO THE BACK OF THE BUS.”

    OTOH, I think, “What, are you looking for my accreditation badge?” might be the new way to thin the herds at meat market bars. Which you probably don’t frequent but still.

    Clara, I am going to use that anyway, even though I don;t frequent meat markets.
